Thousands of people are hurt each year by dog bites in Massachusetts, most often on their head, face, neck and extremities, such as their hands. Dog bites can be very serious and can result in permanent disfigurement and fatal injuries.

In Massachusetts, a dog owner is obligated to properly restrain his or her dog at all times and to warn people of potential threats. If a dog bites you, the owner is strictly liable for your injuries. You do not have to prove that the dog is violent. You only need to show is that the dog belongs to the owner, and you did not provoke the dog by teasing or harassing it.
